Hurricane Irene One Year Later
How has the storm impacted you?
Sunday marks the first anniversary of the storm that pulled trees from their roots, flooded cars, decimated homes and businesses and left thousands without power.
After Irene blew through Howell in August 2011 Howell Patch was there to cover the hurricane that had been downgraded to a tropical storm. With Route 9 flooded and parts of the town still hurting from a drenching rain storm the week before it was definitely an unforgettable time in the township.
One year later, we're asking you: Does the storm continue to impact you? What changes did you make in and around your home? Did your business, or neighboring businesses survive the wind and flood damage?
We'd love for you to share your stories, share your pictures, and talk about how your life has changed over the past year.
